The Message


Published 1976


"Mohammad: Messenger of God"
Handsomely-mounted historical epic concerns the birth of the Islamic faith and the story of the prophet Mohammed -- who, in accordance with the tenants of Islam, is never seen or heard (as this is offensive to certain islamic schools of thought). In Mecca in the 7th century, Mohammed is visited by a vision of the Angel Gabriel, who urges him to lead the people of Mecca to cast aside the 300 idols of Kaaba and instead worship the one true God. Speaking out against the corrupt political and military leaders who rule Mecca. With the help of his uncle, a brave warrior named Hamza (Anthony Quinn), Mohammed and his followers return to Mecca to liberate the city in the name of God. The Message (originally screened in the U.S. as Mohammed, Messenger of God) proved to be highly controversial during its production and initial release. The Message was shot in two versions, one in English and one in Arabic (entitled Al-Ris-Alah), with different actors taking over some of the roles due to language requirements.

Subject: The Message - The Movie
First of all thanks for providing an opportunity to download this memorable piece to refresh my childhood memories.
The movie was banned at that time, in many parts of the Islamic world because of so called custodians of the Religion. They never had had this idea that a time will arrive in a few decades, when this very movie will become an Icon of spiritual inspiration for the coming generations of all Muslims and a "Message" of Islam to the non-Muslim world!
The movie has been written, screen-played and directed in a most diligent manner reflecting all the respect and expertise of the writers and makers. The "Asaa" (the stick) of the Prophet Muhammad S. and the Sword of Ali R. turns a fire on in the hearts when shown.
The movie brings all the events to life so effectively , that one start living in the moments with clear understanding, what was happening and why!!
This Movie will remain one of the best historical movies of Islam...ever, IshaAllah!
Watch it today and pass it on....and on....

Thanks
